Months ago we reported that YouTube was bringing 360-degree videos to the platform, and since then we haven’t seen much to test the functionality. Now, Bjork has released her latest music video on YouTube in 360-degree virtual reality!

Bjork is one of those artists that really pushes creative boundaries in her work, especially when it comes to using new technology to enhance our experience of her work. For example, years ago she used a Reactable as part of her Volta tour, and now, as part of her 20-year retrospective installation that’s just ended at New York’s MOMA, she created a 360-degree virtual reality music video! The video is for Stonemilker from her latest Vulnicura album.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
While the installation was on, you could view the video with an Occulus Rift headset, but now you can watch it on YouTube! As Bjork walks off-screen in the video, you can move the viewing angle and follow her… or you can just stare at the sea… or the beach. You will only be able to watch the video on the Google Chrome browser apparently… But it’s really worth it!
If you want to find more 360-degree videos on YouTube, here’s a playlist!
